Bluey (2018–…): Season 2, Episode 20 - Tickle Crabs - full transcript

When Dad brings a pair of tenacious tickle crabs home from the beach, nowhere in the house is safe. His only hope of escaping their tickles is with help from his true love.

It has been 10 minutes

since a kid has run in here
and asked me a question.

Yeah, mate?

Can we get married?

Why not?
I'm already married to your mum.

Because she's your true love?

Yes, because she's my true love.

Is it nice having a true love?

It's very nice having a true love.

What's so nice about
having a true love?

Hmm. Well, they're always there
for you when you need them.

Let's play ticklecrabs!
Yeah, ticklecrabs!

See you later!

This episode of Bluey
is called Tick...

Uh-uh. No way.

I am NOT playing ticklecrabs.

Oh, why not?

Because I hate ticklecrabs.

Because you're ticklecrabs!

Yeah, but that's the fun part.

Fun for you, maybe. Not for me.

OK, Bingo, this is going to take
a serious please face.

Yes, serious.

Let's get these ears back.

And I'm going to need to see tears.

That's good. And let's hold these.

OK, let's do this.

What do you want?

Why do you never play with us?


You're always at work.

I'm never at work!

It's like you don't even love us.

You are joking, right?

How can you not love
your own children?

Ah, cheese and jam! Alright.

BOTH: Hooray! (GIGGLE)

That was impressive.

This episode of Bluey
is called Ticklecrabs.

Oh, what a wonderful day
at the beach.

A little bit lonely, of course,
but wonderful.

(LOUDLY) It would be better if I had
a true love to share it with.

Perhaps one day I'll find her.

Oh, well, now it's time
to go back to my empty house.

I'll just turn around
and pick up my towel.


Now I'll just shake the sand off.
Now off home.



♪ Oh, where are you, my true love?

♪ Won't you come to me? ♪

Ah, home sweet, lonely home.

Ah, well, time for a nap.

Perchance I will dream
of meeting my true love.



(WHISPERS) Tickle, tickle, tickle,
tickle, tickle, tickle.


Argh! (LAUGHS)

What was that?!

Hm. I must have dreamt
of being tickled.

Oh, well, I might just give
this big soft belly a bit of air.

Argh! (LAUGHS)

Oh, no! Ticklecrabs!

I must have brought
them back from the beach with me.


Tickle, tickle!


Tickle, tickle!

BOTH: Tickle, tickle, tickle.

You can get me up here, ticklecrabs!

Tickle, tickle, tickle, tickle!

Hey! What? No!

These ticklecrabs are smart!

(LOUDLY) If only I had a true love
to come to my rescue!

I've got to make a break for it!



Tickle, tickle, tickle, tickle!

(PANTS) Hang on, I'll use this glue.

BOTH: Tickle, tickle, tickle,

Got ya!

Glue, glue, glue. Stick!

Glue, glue, glue. Stick!

BOTH: Tickle, tickle,
tickle, tickle.

Well, that seems to have done it.

Ooh, you want some of these
big juicy ribs?

Ooh, yeah, they look nice to tickle,
don't they?

Unglue, unglue, unglue.


Argh! Ah, true love,
are you out there?


I could really use you right now

to come and have your turn
with these ticklecrabs.

Hey... (LAUGHS) ..that's enough.

Time out! (PANTS)


Hey, what are you doing in here?

There's no way I'm getting tickled.

Well, it's nice to meet you.

My name is Telemachus
and I'm looking for my true love

who's supposed to always
be there for me

to come and help me
with these crabs.

But she hasn't turned up.

That sounds like hard work.

How so?

Well, your true love
probably has her own problems.

Hm, I never thought of that.

I guess the first thing I do
is yell out for help when I'm...

Good luck!

KIDS: Tickle, tickle!

Argh! That is it!

(LAUGHS) That lady was right.

From now on,
I'll solve my own problem.

You ticklecrabs are going back
to where you came from!

Just...gotta...take the...
(LAUGHS) ..hits!


Now I'll just... (LAUGHS)
..throw them back...

(LAUGHS) ..into the sea!

KIDS: Argh!

Oh, and a big wave
takes them out to sea.

I did it!

I got rid of those tickling crabs.


The air tastes fresher.

Birdsong's sweeter.


I'm free at last!

Oh, but a wave washes them back in!

Wait, what? No! Hey! No! Get away!



Oh, well, let it end, then,

on this... (LAUGHS)

..beautiful day... (LAUGHS)

..alone but... (LAUGHS) longer lonely.




A seagull!



The most beautiful seagull
I've ever seen!


Tickle, tickle, tickle!


Oh, beautiful seagull,
are you my true love?


Oh, I'm so happy!

Farewell! We shall meet again!

I will always be there for you,
for you are my true love.

But I just need half an hour
on the couch. See ya!
